Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, September 06, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- AccuRev Inc. today announced that Software Innovation, a leading provider of purpose-built project execution solutions for large capital projects, has standardized on AccuRev® for software configuration management (SCM) as part of its best-of-breed approach to application lifecycle management (ALM).
Software Innovation conducted an exhaustive evaluation of SCM tools and single-vendor ALM tool suites that included Microsoft Team Foundation, Perforce, and MKS. AccuRev was selected for its advanced visualization and process automation, and innovative approach to multiple, parallel software release management. AccuRev will replace Software Innovation’s existing file-based SCM tool, Microsoft Visual SourceSafe (VSS).
Upgrading to AccuRev will enhance productivity throughout the Software Innovation development organization and provide management and developers with greater visibility into, and control over, the software development process. AccuRev will also offer increased security, audit-ability, and traceability over all changes to multiple customer releases being developed and maintained in parallel and reduce risk associated with off-line and distributed development work.
AccuRev will be used by Software Innovation developers, QA engineers, and documentation and services specialists to more efficiently manage concurrent development projects for its tailored technology solutions and keep track of specific client code customizations and enhancement requests.
Bob Morley, Senior Software Developer at Software Innovation, says, “AccuRev’s ability to dynamically change the software development process from the graphical StreamBrowser saves us time and money. It eliminates the need for time-consuming, expensive scripting and a dedicated SCM administrator as we move resources in and out of projects. This will greatly enhance developer productivity.”
Mr. Morley continued, “Also, AccuRev enhances overall productivity by efficiently managing our customer-specific code customizations in parallel with existing development projects and allows our team to effectively work remotely without worrying about coding conflicts.”
